My baby is now 10 days old and I still feel like I don't know what I'm doing. I'm starting to get stressed out. Someone, please tell me, how do you know if you have gotten all the burps out of your baby..I talked to a lacation specialist on the phone and she let me know it shouldn't take more then like 5-8 min to burp him. I tried it today, got a burp out, and my baby went down for like 10 min, and was up again, i firgured he might be since he hadn't feed on one of my breast ( i breast feed only) for like 5 min..it's just, I thought he was asleep since i had already tried everything to rouse him to feed again. I don't want to be up like i was the last 4 nights till 2 am because i can't get burps out..how many burps i'm i suppose to get out, once he has burped, should I see if he takes to the breast again? How long should he be feeding for? Help, i'm slowly losing it!

Most breastfed babies don't burp. If they are breastfeeding right they don't swallow air. Bottlefed babies swallow air while they are feeding. You won't give your baby colic by not burping. The cause of colic is unknown.
"Colic is uncontrollable crying in a baby. It's not known what causes colic."
